I recently had that rarest of experiences, especially for a parent: A me day, a splurge day mostly all to myself. Didn’t have to go anywhere or do anything, so I asked myself, “What should I treat myself to, since it’s just me?”
I didn’t get out of my PJs, ate exactly what I wanted, and had such fun rummaging around in my various stashes and ended up pulling this and that out to poke and play. It’s like rediscovering buried treasure that you’d forgotten about.
It was a gray, rainy day, so I cranked up my own sunshine. I wound up indulging in my little sample of Carnal Flower shower gel, body cream and fragrance, and then later, as those faded, added some other happy scents into the mix: namely Diptique’s Do Son and Aerin Lauder’s Mediterranean Honeysuckle.
I curled up on the couch with one of my favorite DVDs, “Austenland,” a silly but fun romantic comedy that I got for Christmas and haven’t been able to watch. That and a lovely cup or two of green tea, a fortune cookie, and I was happy as a clam.
I must admit that I was a wee bit tempted to splurge and go treat myself to a pedicure, but decided to wait until it’s well and truly spring and warmer weather. And of course, doing so would have meant having to get dressed and leaving the house. I probably shouldn’t have shared that, as now you all will think I’m a lazy slug, but you know, sometimes, it just feels good.
What do you do when you get some time to splurge on yourself? What scents do you indulge in? What do you do to pamper yourself?
